Fc receptors (FcRs) play a key role in regulating and coordinating responses from both innate and adaptive arms of the immune system. The inhibitory Fc gamma receptor II (FcγRIIB; CD32) is central to this regulation with FcγRIIB(-/-) mice demonstrating augmented responses to mAb immunotherapy, elevated incidence and severity of auto-immunity, and increased(More)
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is an important opportunistic pathogen in immunocompromised patients and a major cause of congenital birth defects when acquired in utero. In the 1990s, four chimeric viruses were constructed by replacing genome segments of the high passage Towne strain with segments of the low passage Toledo strain, with the goal of obtaining(More)
Using a high throughput screening methodology we surveyed a collection of largely uncharacterized validated or suspected kinase inhibitors for anti-human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) activity. From this screen we identified three structurally related 5-aminopyrazine compounds (XMD7-1, -2 and -27) that inhibited HCMV replication in virus yield reduction assays at(More)
